“Unique, cozy place, with GREAT service, and food ;-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Another gem of a find in Fisherman's village. This place has GORGEOUS cozy, intimate decor. Super warm and welcoming, and then to sit seaside, even better. The waiters were excellent, and always had a smile while tending to our crew. The food menu was varied enough, seafood fare & Thai dishes, were excellent. I had a traditional curry seafood dish asked for it "spicy", and got it.. Dessert.. banana in coconut milk..a MUST TRY....YUM....All in all, another outstanding dining experience on Samui !

“Funky Cafe/Restaurant... Lovely Staff...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We went twice... once for dessert and drinks, and once for a seafood set menu.
The iced coffees were freshly made, but not my taste, a little watery for me. The Boiled Banana in coconut milk was fantastic (We had this a few times in samui you must try!)
We had a chat to some of the staff there they are all very friendly and as we went in low season they weren't too busy so they were happy to talk to us and give us some tips on the area.
We booked one of the cute rooms with reclining cushion seats (really cool experience, try lying sideways and eating!) and had a 2,500 Baht Set Seafood Menu.
Comes with a baked potato each, garden salad (best i had in samui) A whole Lobster, Three-Four massive tiger prawns, and a whole red snapper steamed on the BBQ. The snapper was so well prepared, almost every bone was removed, and they replace the spine with a stick of lemongrass and cook in other thai herbs. The flesh fell off the fish but it didn't crumble apart so it was easy to eat. One of the best steamed fish I've ever had!
Even if you just stop by for a coffee try Starfish And Coffee for the lovely atmosphere!!

“Best in Fishermans Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Been to a few restaurants here and this is the best so far.
Service is good with very friendly waiters. They served our food in less than 5 minutes.
We ordered crabs, Tom Yam soup, Thai fried noodles, etc. and the taste is good!
Highly recommended!

“Awesome food and service - best Thai in Fishermans Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

My wife and I have just returned from a week in Bophut (second visit) and we were ecstatic to find that Starfish and Coffee was still operating in Fisherman's Village.
The food at this restaurant, in our opinion, is the best Thai available in the village and is still reasonably priced, despite their popularity (unlike others such as Krua, who have significantly increased their prices).
The service from all of the staff was excellent and the surroundings and facilities were all clean and hygienic, especially for Thai standards.
We can't rate the overall quality of Starfish and Coffee any higher and can't wait to return to Samui to eat here again.
